OUR ARBITRATORS AND MEDIATORS

Our Mediators and Arbitrators are Rabbinical Judges (Dayanim), with several years of international experience in Halachic Arbitration (Dinei Torah) and Mediation, who hold membership of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

Our panel of Dayanim have learnt in leading Yeshivos, and are experts in a number different areas of Halachah. Moreover, they also have a solid University background.

We are able to offer Arbitration and Mediation either in the presence of a single Dayan, or before a full panel of three Dayanim, both of which are valid according to Torah and Civil law.

Our experts' extensive halachic knowledge, coupled with their interpersonal skills and worldly knowledge enable them to conduct effective Arbitration and Mediation in a timely, cost effective and productive manner.
